Choosing RAM in a laptop

Level 7

Greetings to all forum members!

I am contemplating the choice of RAM for my future Lenovo laptop and decided to share my thoughts and seek advice from experienced users. I have several options, each with its own pros and cons.

  1. 16 GB DDR4 2400 MHz (1x16 GB): Pros: Cost-effective solution, allows for gradual memory expansion. Cons: Low clock speed, which may impact performance in certain situations.

  2. 8 GB DDR4 3200 MHz (1x8 GB): Pros: High clock speed, positively affecting overall system speed. Cons: Limited memory capacity, which may pose challenges when handling resource-intensive tasks.

  3. 32 GB DDR4 2666 MHz (2x16 GB): Pros: Maximum RAM capacity, exceptionally useful for multitasking and resource-intensive applications. Cons: Higher in price and not always fully utilized in everyday tasks.

My tasks mainly involve everyday operations - internet surfing, working with office applications, and multimedia content consumption. However, in my free time, I enjoy photo and video editing, so I want my laptop to excel in handling these tasks.

What RAM configuration would you recommend in this situation? Perhaps someone has experience with similar setups on Lenovo laptops? I appreciate any advice and personal experiences in advance!
